I've heard that they have a special sandwich for Thanksgiving...probably a turkey/cranberry combination....I think someone on this board posted about it but can't recall for sure. I'm sooooooo excited, we've had this trip planned for over 300 days...dang that count-down clock Smile

Sounds great Millie! clapping Cape May Clam bake sounds great.
If Scrappy only ate seafood. Oh well. We always did Kona for breakfast, never did it for dinner, but heard good reviews and we're doing it in January. Glad to see you got into Le Cellier, we have not been able to in a while. The rest look good too! We will be waiting for that trip report!.

Millie -

Since we'll be driving down from Charlotte when we go, can you let me know how long it takes you? We're counting on about 10 hours, adding in stops for the dog.

And I'll be most anxious to get your opinion on Best Friends. We have a Villa reserved for Gus when we are there Smile

Happy to Jeff. But I suspect the drive will be longer due to Thanksgiving traffic. We're actually thinking of splitting it between two days...getting through SC can be brutal! Plus we'd like to get in early in the day since our first night will be at the home of our friends.

I'm planning on bringing my laptop to post some "real time" TRs...not making any promises though Smile)

Last time I tried this we weren't at the resort all that much! I do like "reliving" our vacation through a detailed trip report...so I'll get one posted one way or another!

Only 7 days ! How exciting!

How long ago did you put your banner up, I seem to remember it having a really large number, or am I thinking of someone else?

I'm angling to get a trip to Earl of Sandwich in Houston when we're down there for Thanksgiving; I wonder if they have the holiday sandwich there!

Can't wait to hear all about your trip, Millie!

We have so many fantastic meals planned that we'll need a wheelbarrow to load ourselves into our truck to go home!!

But HEY it is THANKSGIVING!!! The only thing missing will be football...guessing we'll see part of a game somewhere along the way!
